Make/Work: A Rumpus Podcast
About This Show
In Season 2 of Make/Work, Scott will speak with artists and activists about how they are responding to the new administration and the role that art and creativity can play in resistance. The show will seek to primarily amplify the voices and work of those being targeted and attacked by this administration.
In Season 1 of Make/Work (Episodes 1-37), Pinkmountain spoke with people working in a wide range of creative mediums about how they survive, how they make a living, how they maintain their work over the long term. Every creative laborer has a different story to tell about how they negotiate their relationship between their creative work and their paycheck and how they balance their lives to sustain their creative practice.

Episode #39: Dorian Wood
Dorian Wood is a musician, vocalist, and experimental performer. Much of Wood’s music and performance is an intensely visceral celebration and embrace of the body, often his own, which he fearlessly exposes while rendering gorgeous and virtuosic melodies. The effect is a powerful and intimate expression of his singular beauty that simultaneously reveals the more universal beauty of each of us as individuals. Pinkmountain and Wood discuss the impact of the election on a personal level and Wood’s reluctance to directly address political matters through his creative work. Wood points out bluntly that as a self-identified “overweight, queer person of color,” being singled out and antagonized by those in power is not exactly a new experience. Photograph © Pablo Almansa.
